has anyone seen this yet?

i was watching "shark tank" last night on my DVR and saw a velveeta commerical that was about amateur radio.

can you believe it? a TV commercial where the subject of the ad was ham radio?

i for one thought it was very cool!

maybe im late to the party because it was uploaded to youtube as long ago as 8 months.

anyway, here is a link if you havent seen it yet:

I forgot about that add. I do remember seeing it on TV.

Your pie chart is hilarious. I used to be a trucker and I had the CB on a lot. I'd say that chart is dead on accurate.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.
  • @ Toll_Free:
    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.
  • @ beakster1715:
    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
